    Current Middle School Principal/Director of Safety and Security at Windber Area School District. Previous K-12 Dean of Students, Alternative Education Director, and PIMS Administrator at Northern Cambria School District and Principal at the Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center.

    My research has focused around the concepts of Mental Toughness (Goal Setting, Mental Imagery, Self-Talk and Aropuisal Control), Teamwork and Carolyn Dweck's Growth Mindset.


    With Saint Francis University being a large component of my educational training, I can attest that the training received during the educational leadership track helped provide me the skills necessary to start my administrative career.
